Date is corrupted in the server's database, it seems. The error is exported to the calendar when it syncs.

Hello Torkel,

Please tell me:
- What timezone do you have selected in your Todoist account (in Settings -> General)?
- What timezones do you use on your Android phone and your iPad?

Also, could you please try to add a task with a certain due time, such as "tomorrow at 16:00" and let me know if the time will be set incorrectly and if so - by how long?

Best regards,

They all use the same timezone, GMT+1, and the test task is due for Saturday at 16:00 on all three devices.

Then I removed the time and set the date to 10 Jan 2013 (that is today, though not by the word "today"). I did this on the Android phone and the task now appear as
Android: 10/1 2013, under "Today"
IPad: 10/1 2013, under "Tomorrow" (sic!)
Web: 11/1 2013, under "Tomorrow"
